Look Up! Photo Challenge: Jane Lurie

An African safari is a life-changing experience especially for a photographer. Being so close to animals in the wild is thrilling and this sequence was part of one of the most exciting moments we spent during our trip. This mother leopard and her cub had just finished feasting on an impala high up in a tree. These photos show them sated and cleaning up after their meal. We spent a great deal of time looking up!


Jane Lurie has won the Audience Choice Award this week! While we expected to see lots of photos of birds in trees, we never expected to see Africa’s big cats in this challenge & it looks like the audience was definitely impressed too. We love the pensive look on the leopard’s face!
